Accidents occur at the most unexpected times, evidenced by the recent and
unfortunate death of Kevin Ward Jr. by a fellow Nascar driver mid race.
That crash had an awful ending, although any injuries sustained in an
accident can put your life into a state of flux.
If you're the victim of a serious auto accident in which the fault
was not your own, you don't have to deal with it alone. With the help
of a personal-injury attorney, your life can be on the road to normalcy
The thing to remember is you've got rights. Your ability to generate
income may be threatened, not to mention the medical bills that will begin
piling up while you're trying to recover. A personal-injury attorney
will help you get the settlement you deserve.
The quicker you engage an attorney, the faster the legal process can take
its course so that you can resume your life. Your attorney is there to
advise you when unexpected issues come up, such as additional accident-related
injuries that surface in the days following the crash, which is not uncommon.
If you're contacted by the other driver's insurance company before
you hire an attorney, don't agree to anything. Lawyers are trained
to make decisions on your behalf, and chances are they are more experienced
at dealing with insurers than you are.
For instance, if you contest any part of the other driver's account,
you may be more inclined to give in while dealing with the insurance provider
on your own. This could lead to a smaller settlement than you would have
otherwise received with the involvement of a personal-injury attorney.
If the other driver isn't insured, don't give up. It's probably
more common than you think. As of 2013, some
14 percent of drivers in the U.S. were without auto insurance, according to The Wall
Street Journal. So don't let it deter you from calling a lawyer. There
could be a stipulation in your own insurance policy that allows for coverage
in these types of instances that can make the difference between your
medical bills being paid or not.
Suffering the aftermath of an accident is never an easy thing to do, especially
if your income has been affected. Most personal injury lawyers don't
collect a fee until after a settlement has been reached, so you won't
have to pay a penny out of pocket.
